In a typical shisha session (abt 1 hour), a shisha smoker can inhale the same amount of toxins as a cigarette smoker consuming over 100 cigarettes. Like cigarette smoking, these toxins put shisha smokers at risk of getting heart diseases, cancers, nicotine addiction & other health issues.
Smoking shisha involves burning wood, coal or charcoal to heat up specially prepared tobacco (shisha).
When the tobacco is heated up, it produces smoke. The smoke bubbles through a bowl of water into a pipe. Smoke is inhaled through a mouthpiece fitted to the end of the pipe.
Shisha usually contains cigarette tobacco. So like cigarettes, it contains nicotine, tar, carbon monoxide and heavy metals, such as arsenic and lead. As a result, shisha smokers can be at risk of the same kinds of diseases as cigarette smokers, such as lung and heart diseases, cancer, respiratory diseases and problems during pregnancy.

Is second-hand shisha smoke (PASSIVE) harmful?
This is when you breathe in someone else’s shisha smoke. It’s dangerous because you still inhale harmful substances like carbon monoxide, toxic chemicals, and toxic particles. Even if you use tobacco-free shisha, the smoke still produces toxins in levels equal to or greater than smoke from tobacco-based shisha.
